11:35 pm
ukee washington >> i'm jessica captioning sponsored by cbs >> last week, president trump said he sent the aircraft carrier the uss carl vincent to north korea but it turns out they were over 3,000 miles away speeding in the opposite direction. instead, trump sent this to north korea. ♪ ♪ >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes rose byrne. lewis black. and musical guest pj harvey. featuring jon batiste and stay human.
11:36 pm
and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: wooo! good to see you! hey! hey, everybody! what's up, jon? hey! thanks, everybody. wow. welcome to "the late show, i'm your host, stephen colbert. you know, over the years i have talked one or two times about fox news host and bold fresh piece of humanity, bill o'reilly. now, like him or not, he has had the number-one cable news show for 15 years.
11:37 pm
until today. ( cheers and applause ) because bill o'reilly has been fired by fox news. ( cheers and applause ) here's the deal. bill o'reilly fans here tonight. really nice to see them. now, bill and i did not see eye to eye on requesting anything. i've done my share of jokes about him and also stole his microwave, but he's been a guest on this show, and i take no pleasure in his downfall. i'm not going to sit here and publicly gloat. jimmy, can you take the camera off me for a second? ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) ♪ ♪
11:38 pm
it's not that big of a surprise i guess, you know. we all saw this coming at us, you know, like an old man cornering an intern in the break room. o'reilly has been accused of sexual harassment for years. was it yesterday? just yesterday, an african american woman at fox came forward claiming o'reilly used to leer at her "and call her "hot chocolate." i know what you're saying-- "that's really sexist." yeah, but remember, it's also pretty racist. now, while this has been blowing up stateside, o'reilly has been vacationing in italy, and just this morning was spotted shaking hands with the pope. things were going great until o'reilly called him "white chocolate." pet name. it's a pet name.
11:39 pm
o'reilly is suddenly off the air. like, a week ago he was on, two weeks ago, he was on. suddenly, gone. this is huge. it's like looking at your front yard and the oak tree is just gone. i'm sure the oak tree said some disturbing things about young black men, with their rap and their neck tattoos, but damnit, that tree has been there forever, and grandpa liked to just sit and stare at it. and then the tree would sell him gold coins and self-lubricating catheters. now, fox issued an official statement this afternoon on o'reilly's dismissal. i think they just took the roger ailes statement and just changed the nouns. they celebrated o'reilly's career, saying, "by 'ratings' standards, bill o'reilly is one of the most accomplished tv personalities in the history of cable news." >> audience: boo! >> stephen: no, no, no, by rating stands he is.
11:40 pm
by moral standards, he was a self-righteous landfill of angry garbage. ( cheers and applause ) garbage. garbage fans. >> jon: garbage fans in the house. >> stephen: here's the thing-- i owe a lot to bill o'reilly. i spent over nine years playing a character based largely on him and then 12 months in therapy to debloviate myself. ( laughter ) so, tonight, we at "the late show" are proud to issue a statement from bill o'reilly's biggest fan, conservative pundit stephen colbert. hello, nation. shame on you. you failed him. you failed the umbilical brothers. you didn't deserve this great man. all he ever did was have your back, and if you're a woman, you know, have a go at the front, too. and what? suddenly sexual harassment's a crime? but that's the country we live in now-- obama's trump's
11:41 pm
america. i guess i always knew this day would come. when i first saw bill on tv, i knew in my heart that no one could possibly sustain such a broad character for that long. so, bill, i invite to you come live in a mountain cabin with me and jon stewart. it's fun. you'll like it. we've got an animal sanctuary. jon and i milk the goats. and soon, i hope, we'll be milking you. ( laughter ) stay strong, papa bear. oh, god! is this really happening? >> stephen: that's it. it's over. end of an era. the end of an era. it looks like o'reilly may be out of a job. but, luckily, he still has his publishing empire. he's the author of "killing lincoln," "killing kennedy," and his latest book, "killing my career." ( laughter ) ( applause ) but, listen, in case-- don't forget, in case you're a fan of
11:42 pm
sexual harassers who are still on tv all the time, we still have trump. because today the new england patriots visited the white house. it's an honor to be invited to the white house. which is why so many patriots turned out for the occasion. oops, sorry, that's from two years ago when obama was president. jimmy, can you add the photo from today? yikes. looks like tom brady deflated the entire team. still, though, still, still a bigger crowd than his inauguration. ( cheers and applause ) inauguration. oh, speaking of elections. speaking of elections. huge election last night i georgia's sixth district. did you follow this?
11:43 pm
iit was an unusual election. it was what's called a "jungle primary," because like every election this year, it will probably end in madness and cannibalism. the ballot featured eleven republicans facing off against the one democrat, documentary filmmaker and man who worked a little too hard to make it look like he doesn't care about his hair, jon ossoff. now, last night, democrats initially got their hopes up after seeing promising early vote returns democrats, did you learn nothing from november? "oh, look at all the eggs we have in this basket. i'm going to count those no, i'm going to teach them calculus." now, sure enough, ossoff only got "48.1% of the vote." if he had gotten over 50% of the vote, he would have won outright, but he got less than the majority, so now i think he gets to be president of the united states. is that how it works? >> jon: something like that.
11:44 pm
>> stephen: hey, i don't know about you, but i have been rivetted to the trial of the century of the week. i'm talking about far-right radio host and guy getting arrested at mini-golf, alex jones. ( laughter ) jones, if you remember, he is now in a bitter legal battle with his ex-wife, and she's showing the court videos of jones' radio show as evidence that he's not stable enough to have custody of their kids. let's take a look. >> this is a human. this is what we look like! this is what we act like! this is what everybody was like before us. this is what i am. i'm a throwback. i'm here! i've got the fire of human liberty! i'm setting fires everywhere! ( laughter ) >> stephen: "uhm, dad, could you drop me off around the corner from the party?" ( laughter ) i'll just walk in. thanks." his ex-wife also showed a voof jones taking off all his clothes and promoting male vitality
11:45 pm
products. i'm going to guess that was the before picture we're looking at. now, jones' lawyer explained that screaming and stripping is just part of jones playing a character on his radio show. except that his ex-wife says jones "is fond of disrobing off air as well, including during counseling sessions." ( laughter ) "okay, everybody, good work today. what i'm hearing is that this issue goes back to when dad got naked just now." let's pick that up again tomorrow. and if you could pick up your pants, that would be good, too. but it gets crazier, because jones said he couldn't remember "basic facts" about his children during a deposition because "he had a big bowl of chili for lunch." what did he sprinkle on top of the chili, cheddar cheese and roofies? but i feel for alex jones, because i, 52, plate a beloved
11:46 pm
right-wing character. not stephen colbert. i'm talking about my caharcter tuck buckford, who had a lot of the same legal problems, which he often talked about on his show "brain fight." jim? >> welcome back to "brain fight" sovereign citizens of the brain nation. old tuck's riled up today. my ex-wife thinks she can conspire with the government to divorce me and take my children, but i'm fighting back with my brain fist, another because my mind is a weapon, and my skull's a gauge of cage for your protection, all right? for everyone's protection, because i've got power, okay. i'm a father! i have male vitality! my children flew out of my penis like a flame of love! and they were made and now i love them like they were a fire of my own mind! now they want to take them away just because i can't remember a few minor details like how many of the children are there?
11:47 pm
( laughter ) or what their names are. and if all those children are my children. they look like my children. hell, they were in my yard, okay. they know the rules. first time the frisbee lands in my yard, frisbee's mine. second time, you're mine, okay. ( laughter ) and i can't remember stuff, all these details about these kids that may or may not be mine because my brain signals are getting all scrambled up by the chili, okay. right here, the serpents at fema, the whore of people-a-lon, is packing hormones in my hormel. that's where the name comes from the hormelomone. it's gone, all right!

11:54 pm
don't know how to say this-- we do this show for money. i offered to do it for college credit, but cbs insists on paying me. and so we have sponsors, whom we love as if they were children who paid us money. tonight, we welcome a new sponsor: allergy medication and highest scoring scrabble word xyzal. ( laughter ) now, here's the deal-- i don't actually have to talk about any of the products, okay. i just have to mention the product, and i have already done so. but in this case, i would like to talk to xyzal's mascot, nigel the owl. give it up for nigel the owl, everybody. ( cheers and applause ) hi, nigel. >> hello, stephen! >> stephen: nigel, why for this product, if you don't mind me asking, why for this product do you guys use an owl? >> because owls are associated with night. if allergy symptoms keep you up
11:55 pm
at night, xyzal gives you relief so you can sleep. ( laughter ) >> stephen: okay. you know owls are nocturnal, right? you're up all night. what's the deal? does this mean owls are watching me sleep? >> no, no, no, no. i just want you to know that allergy symptoms don't have to ruin your sleep. be wise-all, take xyzal. ( laughter ). >> stephen: no, no, i'm sorry. what was that last thing? >> i said, "be wise-all, take xyzal." >> stephen: what is "wise-all?" is that a word? >> oh, yes. people say "wise-all" frequently. >> stephen: no. are you sure it's not y'all, like "be wise, y'all?" >> no. be wise-all, take xyzal. >> stephen: okay. i saw the box. you can put it away. ( laughter ) put the box away. that wasn't part of the deal,
11:56 pm
nige! because it really sounds like you worked backwards from "xyzal" to make it rhyme, and the wise thing is because you're an owl or something. but xyzal is also a made-up name. you could've called the medicine "lart" and then your slogan could be "be smart, take lart." ( laughter ) >> that makes no sense. >> stephen: nigel the owl, everybody! nigel the owl right there. don't take want box out. put the box back! ( cheers and applause ) enough! now, as many of you know by now, i'm a roman catholic. but i have a hard time getting to mass sometimes because there's no bar there. and that makes me miss my favorite catholic tradition, confession. so if you don't mind, i'd like to confess to you right now, my

12:11 am
two or three days of being cultured and hers doubled and tripled and went on to become this force of nature. and they developed the polio vaccine. they developed hiv cocktails, chemotherapy, in vitro fertilization. >> stephen: all based on the chain of her reproduced cells. >> which were cancer ow, and they were so powerful -- >> stephen: and not just in that lab, either. >> no, they're literally all around the world. >> stephen: all of our lives are better because of what this woman was able to give to the world. >> literally, literally. and this is-- this is the story of her family who, unfortunately, were very taken advantage of. and trying to sort of give them reparations and to find out more about their mother-- she had five children, and they didn't really know what had happened. >> stephen: and the woman, the author you play, rebecca skloot, she is traveling around with-- is it the daughter or granddaughter? >> it's the daughter. hoe henrietta's daughter, who was two when her mother died, they're traveling around, and
12:12 am
it's, like, this investigative story between of the two of them, the journalist and mother and they're both obsess with the story and want to find out about henrietta and who she was. >> stephen: and that's the part played by oprah winfrey. we all love oprah here but you have the unique experience of having oprah yell at you in the scene we are about to watch, which i would never look forward to. but this is oprah winfrey upset at the prospect of their family being taken advantage of again. >> exactly. >> let's talk about this book you want to write, which is all fine and good, but where's the funding in there for the family? >> i don't have any funding. >> you ain't offered none, either. >> i can't offer you something i don't have. i told you i want to start that foundation. >> where is it? >> what? >> the book! you said you turned it in, so where is the book? >> there's no book yet. >>ings where the book! i said, where is the book! is it for sale already out there and you're making money off of my family like everybody else.

( laughter ) >> stephen: we were taking the south polar route. >> exactly. >> stephen: anywhere you go on either, eventually will get back to north korea. >> it all starts there. >> stephen: a lot of people have been protesting the president. there has been a burgeoning renewal of protesters. some people call it the resistance. some people take to the streets. do you do that? do you get out there? does the angry crowd feel like home to you?
